Training and Events

Many of our courses can be adapted for in-house delivery and can be specifically tailored to meet individual needs.

Sometimes due to reasons beyond our control a course has to be cancelled or postponed.  We will advise nominating officers and applicants immediately of such a decision.  Please note in exceptional circumstances we may have to make changes at short notice to the content (to reflect changes in legislation, current thinking or topical issues), timing, speakers and/or venue.

Sharing Circle



Jul 31, 2020 10:30 - 12:30


 Join Clare Norman to experience a Sharing Circle or Holding Space, a form of group coaching. In this space, we share what is going on for us right now as a way of re-resourcing ourselves so that we can better resource our coaching clients and team members. 

This will be an unhurried and uninterrupted space and time. It’s like taking a drink of water when we didn’t really know we were thirsty. 


 Now isn’t the time to pretend we don’t feel. Instead we need to turn towards feelings and open up spaces where we can talk about what we’re experiencing, what sense we make of it and what it’s bringing up for us. Our emotions have been up, down, round and round during the fires in Australia, the pandemic and the more recent racial tensions. We will explore questions such as:

• What are you thinking about / what’s on your mind right now?
• How are you feeling about that?
• What do you want or need?
• What might you be inclined to do about it, if anything?
There will be a maximum of ten people on the call, and we will hold the space for 75-90 minutes.
